dragSTER are a five piece punk rock n roll band who formed in the ghost town of Coventry in 2006. They have a love of dirty, fast and energetic music, 50's iconography and sci-fi and B movie horror. Their first EP was produced by Rat Scabies of The Damned and they were managed for a time by Jah Wobble of PIL.
Singer Fi did a 40 date tour of the States fronting US collective Pigface with drummer Martin Atkins (PIL, Ministry) and JS Claydon (Pitchshifter) amongst others.
Their first EP “Trailer Trash” produced by Rat Scabies received rave reviews in the music press and it got the band signed to London management team Scruffy Bird. dragSTER released their first album "Step Into The Deathray" in 2006 on Noisemaker Records (Germany). The first pressing of the album sold out in two weeks. The band released their second album "Here Come The Meat Robots" in 2010 on Manchester punk label STP Records. The band are now on the roster of the UKs best punk, psychobilly and ska booking agency, Hidden Talent Booking.
A new EP and Video "Drink You Pretty/The Dead Are Out In Droves" is to be released in March 2014 and a third album is set for release in summer 2014.
They have toured the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Germany and Italy, Spain and Portugal with over 300 dates under their belts. The band will be doing full tours of the UK and Europe in 2013 as well as a planned US west coast tour. They are booked for festivals including Rebellion, Inkfest & Boomtown.
This sleazy rock n roll train looks set to continue on rolling for a few years to come.
